Frankfort political prophets and it is said to be practically a certain ty that Justice Harlan will resign in December and President Taft will appoint Gov Willsoil as his success or If the resignation of Governor Willson is filed after December 10 of the present year Lieut Gov William H Cox would succeed him as Governor and serve the remaining two years of the term If the appointment should be made

Washington recently and the trip to Atlanta where he- met Judge Taft combined with the recent visit of Justice Harlan who is a lifelong friend of G vv Willson have given rise to the story that Judge

Taft today for the Isthmus of Panama where he will inspect the work so far completed on the canal Mr Taft and the party of consulting engineers are to sail on the cruiser North Carolina the Montana going along to act as convoy for the party As Mr Taft said Taft said jocularly a few days ago two armored cruisers are required to carry a man of his bulk on a trip of such importance Seriously speaking however the decision to have two cruisers to convey the presidentelect is a precaution suggested by certain senators on the ground that there Is no legal provision for a successor to the presidency in the event of a fatal ity overtaking a presidentelect prior to his inauguration Will Stay Week on Isthmus The North Carolina and the Montana are speedy vessels capable of making 22 knots if pushed and will get Mr Taft in Colon in four days Mr Tafts stay on the Isthmus of Panama will be limited to one week While there he will be the guest of Colonel Goethals at his residence at

will devote part of their report or reports to ae question of the advisability of continuing the present digging of the canal on the lock plan They have been urged by the presi dent to forget that the government has committed itself to the construc tion of a lock canal if the opinion is that the adoption of such a plan instead of one aiming at the digging of a sea level canal was a mistake the

a bank to be deposited r for her stepfather Charles Gephert The officers believe thes girl did not go down town but wars attacked in the immediate vicinity of her home There wars evidence qf a struggle which covered a distance of nearly 100 yards and ended in a va cant lot The body was found in so shed upon this lot which is owned by Grafton Kennedy by whom the dead girls sister is said to be em ployedThe autopsy and other evidence the police say indicate that the girl first was attacked against which she fought and then was struck on ther head by a board Evidently uncon scious she was dragged to the vacant lot where she regained consciousness and where the struggle apparently was renewed Finger iriarks on the girls throat indicate that she then was choked into silence and submis

IMore Than a Billion and a Half In Gain Would Be SavedValue of Road Built Near Greenville Miss at Low Rate r When the annual appropriation bill of the department of agriculture was tinder discussion last April Repre sentative Benjamin Humphreys of Greenville Miss made the epigram matic statement that no road can cost the farmers as much as a poor one That touched the very kernel of road economics for careful research and exhaustive study have proved says the New York American that the poor roads of the nation place a mud and a ifalll climbing tax of not less than a Quarter of a billion dollars a year on those who use them The representatives sparkling little sentence was in answer to a query by Representative Sims as to the cost of building the unique burnt clay roads of the south a system evolved by the experts of the office of public roads of the United States department of agri culture at an almost Incalculable bene lilt to the cotton growers of the south Mr Humphreys had explained in in tenso the skillful methods adopted by Engineer Spoon who had been ordered by Director Logan Waller Page of the office of public roads to go to the delta district of Mississippi and make a study of conditions He laid logs I I IMPROVED HIGHWAYS WILL SOLVE IT along stretches of impassable thoroughfares which had as a basis the sticky gumbo clay of the south burnt them to such purpose that the clay was changed entirely in charac ter and then supervised the construc tion of a road that for hauling purposes is little short of the splendid anacadam roads of the north and east It depends entirely upon thechar ncter of the country through which the road passes said Mr Humphreys when asked what it all cost If it be boughtfor saythat roadlly maintained r In a country where the people have never gone Into the building of good roads the thought of paying 2000 a mile seems prohibitive Where the experiment is once made however we all know that the people and especially the farmers who usual ly at first are most violently opposed to the undertaking demand that the roads be constructed and are most willing to bear the tax In explaining how easily the bur den of taxation would be borne even Jf the authorities of his county decided to expend a half million in the construction of a perfect system of high class roads Mr Humphreys said If the farmer instead of haul ing six bales of cotton with two mules as could be done with ease last iWinter over the burnt clay road near reenville the one built as a model by Engineer Spoon of Director Pages office could haul but two he would jbe taxed for a bad road at a higher irate than anybody was ever taxed for a good road not counting the wear and tear on mules and wagons- I have seen seed cotton In the pens in July which had been picked rafter the rains had begun to fall in tthe previous winter and which had mot been hauled to the railroad where the gia was located because the roads were too bad to travel Think of the itar that man was paying and that too for a road he could not travel Mi Humphreys who has taken a rreat interest in the splendid work jbelng done by Director Page and who 5s apparently thoroughly familiar With the experiments and scientific advancements being made by that scholarly road expert named a num jber of the publications issued by the office and told of the vast benefits the farmers of the country were receiving through their distribution He refer Wed especially to the efficacy of the teplit log drag as a road builder and jmnintaJner and read letters from men vtf who had attained the most gratifying results from the use of this simple but effective device Last year the 2000000 miles of poor roads in the United States cost a vast fortune to the farmers and Incidentally another to the city men the added cost to the farmers of hauling farm products over the well nigh impassa ble roads being in the end paid by the men who consume them Statistics gathered from the leading countries of Europe prove that the cost of hauling over the American roads is far higher than in any other country the average In France Ger many and England being 12 cents a ton mile last year to a cost of 25 cents here That difference of 13 cents is the unnecessary tax burden the Amer ican farmer is forced to bear because state and county authorities have long been blind to the benefits which would follow an awakening to road impor tanceAs the average length of the haul of all American farm products is 94 miles it will be seen that every ton hauled cost the farmer who hauled it 122 more than the hauling of a ton of similar products would cost the farmers of England France or Ger many Last year nearly 86000000 000000 pounds of farm products were hauled over the country roads Reduce that vast weight to tons charge It 122 a ton and it proves an annual loss to the farmer of 52400000 And the saving of that sum would be a trifle of a fraction of the benefits that would come from an immediate construction of perfect roads for it is but a portion of the weight annually hauled over these roads the statistics of the department of commerce and labor after liberal deductions placing the quantity at approximately 250 000000 tons The saving in the han dling of that stupendous bulk would be 305500000 annually- It has been ascertained also that the construction of model highways in a rural community brings an Immediate increase in the value of the property which such roads traverse There are 840000000 acres of farm lands in the United States at the present time Statistics show that the improved road increase in farm values is from 2 to 9 an acre Were all the acres to benefit even the lowest amount the gain would be 1080000000 which might be saved in hauling and the total would be amply large enough to gridiron the length and breadth of the continent with macadam roads as fine as those which have given the fame and wealth to Francethe land of perfect highways GOOD ROAD SUGGESTION Kansas Man Says Put State Agricultural College In Charge Several articles have appeared in the papers recently on the subject of good roads arid always with the thought of a lot of new officers and commissions Why duplicate Ricers all the time Instead of creating new commissions and a new set of of ficers the sensible and economical thing to do would be to grant the Ag ricultural college funds to be used for this specific purpose writes JK Mil ler of Manhattan Kan to the Kansas City Star Plans have been furnished free to county commissioners town ship trustees and road supervisors Special meetings have been held in many countiest and the subject of good roads has been placed on the pro grams of hundreds of farmers insti tutesA bulletin prepared for members of farmers institutes in Kansas covers the whole subject of roa making dirt roads macadamized roads bridges culverts concrete stone iron wooden etc All we need now is a few thou sand dollars a year to employ a spe cial highway engineer to work with the county engineers and commIssion- ers and others prepare plans and go out to the different communities that want improved roads and help start the work The entire expense could be met by a small state license on au tomobiles as they tear up the roads more than ten times the number of wagons EFFECT OF GOOD ROADS Much Easier to Haul Cotton Now In Lee County Ga A sight was witnessed at Leesburg Ga the other day that would have been Impossible afew years ago Two mules from five miles in the country came into town with five bales of cot ton Several years ago the particular road traveled was in places an almost bottomless sand bed The convicts have been at work on the road for about four years and while the roads lack much yet of being what they should be still the dif ference is great and markedly notice able when former times are compared The hardest part of the pull was after the team hit the streets of Leesburg Lee county has about thirty convicts at work steadily on her roads It is hoped that she will soon have some of the best roads in the state Shale Rock For a Park Road About a mile and a half of drive way In North park Springfield was built In 1907 and surfaced with shale at a cost of 190 cents per square yard The shale was spread eight inches thick and compressed to six inches by rolling It was hauled from mines one a mile and a half away and another two miles Haul ing from the former cost 40 cents and from the latter CO cents per cubic yard two yards being hauled atn load The sod cut from the line of the road 4648 square feet in area was used for sodding the sides of thp Guts and fills at a cost of 93 cents per square yard 4 r t to 0 11soszne Centenary 1909 fl tAsSurveyor and Soldier IHonest Abe

Incidentally he was a lecturer a writer for tlatboatImanprobably tried to He never was an editor and yet he wrote heavy edito rials I wonder why they are always called heavy editorials for the San

split rails mythical and other wise helped run a raft down the Mississippi on two or three occasions did a little carpentering for his father which has been an honorable trade since the days of one Joseph in Naza reth helped the women about the house and generally made himself use ful and popular A useful man is apt to be popular provided he is not too conscious of his usefulness so if he can tell stories and especIallyi fellow Lincoln could do was the other There Is no be drank whisky used tobacco orIswore to excess but onecan be a fellow without any of these accom plishments notwithstanding the pop ular hallucination to the contrary A man who has to depend on such ex traneous helps to make himself seem a good fellow is weak in the role Lincoln was naturally such a good fellow made everybody so cheerful and liked everybody so much was him self so fully the joy and JJfe of every crowd he entered that people never stooped to inquire whether he drank adulterated liquor burned doped to bacco and uttered cheap swear words or not These things are not half as as some young chaps think themIt was after he was of ago that Lin coln became a clerk In those days the village store took the place of the good at both There is no record that ho was an especial star at weighing sugar and measuring calico but when It came to or Jackson and Clay politics with the best of them And as for convulsing his with the point of a story they still have a log somewhere in Illi nois that was worn slick by men fall Ing off It with at Lincolns At least they had one at last reports and if It Is not In exist epee now it will not take some enterprising reporter long to find another There was no chance for a bump on a log in Lincoln neighbor hood The future president clerked for awhile and then bought a store of hip own He bad no money with which to buy It but high now buy railroads without money so why cold he not buy a store in the same wat For joule reason this particular trade American Press Association t tT T T did not turn out well Some lay it to Abes partner who belonged- to the fly by night persuasion and others say that Lincoln himself spent too much time reading and telling yarns and was not close enough in driving bargains At any rate the store went under and poor Lincoln shouldered the debts for the entire concern It took him years to pay up but he finally did it to the last dollar thatIhe is bound either to become great or- g to the poorhouse Nearly all the at some time in their career gets in the hole financially and rake and scrape till they hand over the last cent Sir Walter Scott and Mark Twain are two conspicuous examples I wish more people were ambitious to be great and felt they could not do It except in that way The only man who can become illus trious and not pay his debts Is a gen ius and the average genius breaks all the rules and most of the laws With poor Lincoln this was not a joke He did not get all those store debts out of the way till long after he one or excep tions It was at about thin time that be gained the sobriquet of Honest Abe The title of Is de rived from the same root but honest means more Almost anybody ran bp- an honorable but Lincoln was so honest that he could not take a bad case and remained poor all his lifeIIt was during his mercantile experi ence that he became a soldier He himself has given a humorous account of his exploits It appears that he was never in a battle but he is not the only soldier that never smelled gunpowder except in passing ammu nition wagons Lincoln was elected He laid out several towns found lost cornersInecessary wiseIares manufacturing setIItllng audience laughter anecdotes anywhere financiers 4Copyright emporium Immortals integrityI honorable military captain of his company which was quite a distinction inasmuch as he Lnew nothing of military tactics and neither did his men As for discipline the soldiers obeyed when they wanted lo which was only now and then Lincoln was more fortunate than most bf the captains and colonels however In that he had the respect and good will of his men Besides he could lick cnybody in the company which count I3 for something in those days For long and weary miles the vol rnteers followed Black Hawk and Cnally wore him out and chased him eff the map After Abes company was disbanded he reenlisted in a picked company of sharpshooters but raw little more of actual warfare than before At one time he found a man that could throw him down in a wres tle which is about the only time that over happened in his career When it came to throwing an adversary either in a lawsuit a debate a political cam paign or In the Illinois style of jiu jitsu Lincoln was there with the necessary apparatus He doubtless would have been a great soldier also If he could ever have caught up with the enemy It is hard for a man to show his military prowess in a foot race About the only noble red inrnrXin roln saw during his Indian warfare came on a peace mission and he then lad to Interfere JLo save the copper totarcd tnws life To do tnls lie had to defy his whole company who were afraid they would not get any Indian If they did not take this one After Lincoln tramped and boated his way home from the war came his experience as a surveyor Washington was also a surveyor which is not the only way in which the two great est of our presidents were similar Their characters and religious views tallied in many particulars In build they were both tall and athletic Washington was a famous wrestler never having been thrown it is said When this was called to Lincolns at tention he musingly said It is a curious thinG but that Is Just precisely my record when 1 was a youth I could outlift any man in Illinois and 1 never was thrown If George were around now I should be pleased to have a tussle with him and I rather believe one of the plain people of Illinois would be able to keep up his end against the old Virginian If this country is the modern Pales tine and we are the chosen people to carry forward the gospel of liberty then Washingtu vis our Abraham and Lincoln our Isaac Where Is our Jacob to complete the trinity and give the nation its peculiar character of de mocracy and spirituality for the ages The manner in which Lincoln took up his work as surveyor reveals two or three of his most prominent charac teristics When he was approached with the proposition to become a dep uty county surveyor he was splitting rails as usual but whether they were real mythical or political Is not stated As the surveyor was a Democrat while he was a Whig he refused un less he could talk as he pleased This was promised He then objected that he knew absolutely nothing about surveying Here was an actual obstacle There are numberless offices that are filled by men who know nothing of their duties but to survey land find old corners layout towns settle boundary disputes and do the other things that fall to the lot of a sur veyor require more than political pull and a dignified front Lincoln was one of those men who know the features of the goddess Opportunity whenever she happens their way and it did not take the penniless exsoldier long to recognize her physiognomy in this of fer One of the secrets of Abraham Lincolns success was that he was in tensely ambitious and another was that IIQ grabbed every chance which he could overtake It did not take him many minutes to make up his mind that he would accept that job as surveyor and that he would learn the duties in the shortest possible time his mental equipment would permit Now any one who knows anything about surveying can comprehend just how difficult a proposition this was for a boy who had had less than a years schooling and that under men who knew more about switches than they did about books However Abe went at the task in deadly earnest It was a night and day job with him and in a few weeks I am really ashamed to say how fewit was accomplished A Lincoln Esq exfarm laborer w is t full fledged surveyor aiiJ uioruuVcr was a good one He laid out s yemI towns found lost corners and tell numberless farmers just how much of the United States of

barbecued and fittingly celebrat ed Good story tellers were in as great demand in those days as good novelists are now and there were more of There themiLincoln did not Ilk physical work Possibly this is true To be perfectly honest I never saw many men who do There are times when lam not en amored of It myself although I never admit that fact to my wife are also soldiers who do not ThereI ing shot

or slovenly state And rs for mental labor he did love that Ho worked rap= idly at anything and generally accomplished as much as two ordinary men in the same length of time Once im mersed in a subject he was hll there and stayed until It was rooted out to the last fiber He knew the three secrets ofT ation mental comprehension of the task in its every detail and tbrrnughuess InI accomplishment It vs a physical impossibility for him to do a thing in a halfway manner Vhatover he had to do he did worthily of Abraham Lin coln He seemed to have a lurking consciousness that he might be a great man some day and he did not want to leave anything behind him that would not measure up to that future stand ard Indeed it Is on record that he expressed himself to some such effect I have seen men work that would have been helped by the same conscious ness or any other consciousness except that of the quitting hour Lincoln was a good laborer despite the fact that he did not like It He was a good soldier or he would have been if there had been any real sol diering to do a good surveyor with out any modifying phrases and he would have been a good clerk if he had possessed sufficient of the com mercial sense In this he seemed to be peculiarly lacking as was shown in almost every transaction of his life It was on such ladder rounds that the future leader In a supreme strug climbed from the depths to the heights Each step was sure There might be failure in outer things as In the store venture but there was no failure in the man himself He met all tests and retained his honesty and Integrity He

Text Is Advertising and the Talk Is on How to Catch and Hold Home Trade and Build Up the Business and the Burg Together Y Mark Twain Is an inveterate joker as most people have discovered but very often there is a distinct moral toy one of his jokes which does notre quire to be labeled It can be seenr with the naked eye Many years ago the now famous humorist was editor of the Enterprise a newspaper pub lished at Virginia City Nev One day he received a letter from a subscriber who appeared to be a bit superstitious The subscriber explained that he had found in his copy of the Enterprise that week a live spider and he wanted to know whether that meant good luc or bad luck Editor Mark who ras plain Sam Clemens at that period sat himself down and wrote a brief reply In his Answers to Correspondents column That spider he said was merely looking over the columns of the Enterprise to find out what merchant doesnt advertise In his home paper The spider wants to go and spin itS web across the door of that mans place of business so that it may have a long life of undisturbed serenity This is the age of advertising If you doubt It just take note of the fact that up to a few months ago the circu lation of the leading mail order monthlies of the United States aggregated 25000000 copies Why The litera ture contained in most of such publi cations Is not of high class and there is no such enormous demand for that class of journals merely for reading purposes Their circulation had been pushed by various methods in many cases the papers being practically giv en away t carry the advertising of big city establishments and smaller catchpenny schemes to the town and country districts These papers with their enormous circulation were sup ported by rdvertising The advertis- Ing even paid for the white paper and the expense of mailing Advertisers paid a stiff rate because they were x satisfied of the wide circulation of the sheets They knew a good thing when they saw It and they were willingto pay for it It Is estimated that since the recent ruling of the postoffice department regarding subscription lists and copies no less than 18000000 enormous circulation has been compulsorily Many of the sampleJvith the biggest circulation pended altogether The local merchant may himself upon this fact but there are many reasons why he should not sit down placidly and expect to get back such patronage as the mail order peo pie have taken away from him The biggest concerns In the cities which thrives on trade from country districts by mail orders print gigantic cata logues and distribute them with a generous hand These catalogues carry price lists and pictures and descriptions of goods which could not be printed in mall order journals because of the high cost of space and the lack p of enough space to accommodate the printed matter The catalogues are in nowise affected by the postal rulings Now that the mail order advertising avenues are fewer than they were the catalogue houses are sure to increase their output of catalogues They will buy up the names and addresses of thetdefunct subscription and sample copy lists and flood the country with cata logues As remarked this is an advertising Jhisbe awake and active Unless he takes measures to keep his business and his bargains before the eyes of the pee pIe dwelling In his trade radius he cannot expect prosperity The home newspaper Is the one medium for dls seminating publicity to the people Men women and children in town and country have acquired the habit of reading advertising matter to find what they want If they do not dis cover In tlu home newspaper any hints as to barsrims which may be seen In town with the naked eye they are inclined to take their chances onJ purchasing by mall from the cats ogue hints It may be taken for granted that most people prefer to spend their mon ey In the home town If They can get what they want at reasonable rates They are always on the lookout for bargains The catalogue people are very well aware of this fact and they jact accordingly To combat mail trade the local merchant must realise this fact and get in line with the spirit of the age which means that he must ad vertise Advisory Boards on Art In several cities and towns there has been of late an advisory board of art Instituted whose duty shall be to coil = sider and report upon plans

Editor of The News So many of my old friends living in Clark and surrounding counties have written me regarding the Pan handle of Texas that I take this methpd ofsupplying the information they seek The rapidly enhancing value of lands not only in Kentucky but in all the agricultural districts of the older States is no doubt the cause of these inquiries Similar to Kentucky The climatic conditions of the Panhandle are very similar to those of Kentucky except that the rain fall in winter is less and therefore less mud while the raiiififll during the growing months is sufficient for the growing of profitable crops of wheat barley oats corn Kaffir corn milo maize timothy alfalfa and every va riety ofvegetables and vines Owing to the large part of the State used in Thebprice of Panhandle grown grain is equal to that paid in Chicago Our State Railroad Commission has fix ed a State rate on grainvth ft enables the mills in Texas to pay the Panhandle farmers more for their wheat than the same wheat would bring on the Chicago market and the same can be said of all winter grain grown in grainIcon- sumers Live Stock Section As a live stock section the championship prizes won at the Chicago Fat Stock Show prove that no other State can produce better cattle while the mules and horses bred in the Panhandle have all the good quali ties of the Kentucky bred animals with jjre advantage ofa better hoof and greater staying powers owing to the drier climate and higher altitude Broom corn equal to the best grown in Champaigne County Illinois can be produced in the Panhandle and this very profitable crop is receiving increased attention having a rate of 10 per ton cheaper to the market centers of the East using rail to Gal veston and water to Boston New Yorkand Philadelphia Sugar Beets Coming Crop Sugar beets is the coming crop The crop has been grown successfully for eight successive years by several cattle feeders the analysis showing from 15 to 18 per cent sugar with a purity of from 83 to 86 per cent A sugar factory will certainly be erect ed as capital will not long leave this industry that pays from 25 to 33 per cent in an undeveloped state The erection of a beet sugar factory that will pay the farmer 5 per ton for his beets the crop yielding from 15 to 25 tons will cause the level rich lands of the plains section of the Panhandle to quickly go to 100 per acre and over Such lands in the sugar beet growing sections of the West growing no heavier crops than the Panhandle are now worth over 125 to 200 per acre The Pan handle when this industry is de veloped can produce sugar enough for the Nation Hog Breeding Hog breeding is one of the most profitable branches of lie stock breeding in the Panhandle Withal falfa and Kaffin corn they can be produced cheaper than in Arkansas where they feed on natures crop the acorn Cholera in Arkansas sometimes wipes out a breeders whole herd of hogs while so far the Panhandle has never lost a hog from this disease A 200000 packing house now being erected at Amavillo will take all the hogs and cattle that will be offeredthe Water is Pure The water is pure and free from the fever germs that cause so much sickness and unhappiness in sec tions where the water is shallow and contaminated with fever germs Fathers and mothers should study the healthfulness of the new section to which they propose to migrate In this regard the Panhandle stands without an equal The rosy checked boys and girls that can be seen at the Pan handle schools bespeak a noble race of men and women who in a few years will grow up to further develop this greatly blessed section of our country Mosquitos do not invade the hous es and bars are not needed or used Values Advancing Land values are advancing rap idly and with the coming of a beet sugar f factory will equal or exceed those of Kentucky The word Texas used to stand for every thing that was toughtbday the word Texas yJ y1N j SMASH IN PRICESBIG REDUCTION ON WALL PAPER We must

not startling Earthquake prevention is among the bold propositions of latter day science Assuming that the disturbances are due to electrical forces the idea has occurred that the subterranean cur

y118eod When Animals Are III Said a prominent veterinarian An imals when sick are the most helpless and appreciative of all creatures and the way of administering relief and medicine in many instances is as novel as it is effective The most savage and revengeful animals during spells of se vere pain are as a rule as docile and tractable as a child Relief must come from a human being and come quick ly and they seem to know it The most vicious horse when groaning with pain would allow a mere child to administer relief and many of the wild animals when in sickness seem to forget their savage instincts The Greyhound Various explanations have been giv en of the origin of the term grey hound some authors claiming that the prefix grey Is taken from Grains meaning Greek others that it signifies great while still others say that it has reference to the color of the animal In no other breed of hounds is the blue or gray color so prevalent and consequently the last mentioned derivation seems the most plausibleLon don Notes and Queries Thought He Knew Mrs GewjumJohn do you know what you said in your sleep last night Mr GewjumOh yes I suppose I said Maria for heavens sake

western girl wherein the breath of the plains the purity of the air and the wholesome ness of life are embraced in a simple greeting and the clasp of a hand The cowboys took off their hats and made elaborate bows to the young wo man Howdy Miss Polly they criedYou sure do look pert added Sagebrush with what he considered his most winning smile Fresno snickered and hastily brushed back the hair from his forehead Wheres Jack she asked the two men who at once ranged themselves one on each side of her He did not start with the boys explained Allen Hell be along soon PollyWell now when it comes to leok ers whats the matter with P lly Hope exclaimed Sagebrush slyly Glances of admiration were cast at the girl who was dressed simply and plainly in a little white gown which Mrs Allen had made

Go long she said Wheres Bud Lane Didnt you give him ails inviteThe boys turned from one to the other with feigned glances of disgust- at being slighted by Polly for an absent one The one sided

recover from his surprise and proceeded to haze him to their intense delight and the sheriffs embarrassment for he knew that Polly was somewhere near enjoying his discomfiture Polly wait ed until her victim was fully ready for her particular form of torture The reception of the cowboys was crude to her refined form of making the fat sheriff uncomfortable With the velvety cruelty of a flirt she held out her hand saying Hello SlimThe sheriff flushed under his tan The red crept up the back of his neck to his ears He awkwardly took off his hat With a bow and a scrape ho greeted her Howdy Miss

have a queer way sometimes of getting water to quench their thirst says the Chicago News Under u certain kind of bush they din down a foot or two and bring up a hard clay ball When the ball is broken out jumps a frog and the trav eler then proceeds to drink the pure cool water that the creature had pro vided in its clay retreat as its beverage during a drought Another method of storing water is one that nature has given to most members of the fix j family It consists of an interior sack in which water is kept for the emergencies of thirst just like the arrange ment of the camel for a similar pur pose The water so preserved is as pure and tasteless as that from a springThis suggests a peculiarity about the frogs skin that is interesting The cold and clammy condition of the skin is due to its constant absorption of wa ter A frog has been known to soak up onehalf its own weight of water ir a short time A singular result of this skin moisture is the ability of the frog to stand a sudden application of dry heat If for example a redhot rod be held quite close to a frogs body the frog will not at once feel the heat because the skin moisture forms a sort of vapor film through which it takes a little time for the heat to go One of the Three A boy of eight said to his mother Well there were only three boys in school today who could answer one question that the teacher asked tis And I

His Op ponent May Make Up For This With Aggressiveness and Hitting Power By THOMAS F CLARK While the followers oD pugilism throughout the country are busily en gaged discussing the question Will Jim Jeffries return to the prize ring and many promoters trying hard to make the retired champion reconsider his determination never to enter the ring again in a scheduled bout by of fering huge purses for a fight between himself and Jack Johnson the big colored champion has agreed to defend his title against Sam Langford the Boston light heavyweight before the National Sporting club of London on May 24- Jimf Coffroth the California promoter has also offered a 20000 purse for a bout with Stanley Ketcbel the mid dleweight champion at CoImaCal on July 4 and it is likely that Johnson will accept- The match between Johnson and Langford has been hanging fire for some time both men having agreed to meet on Feb 22 When Burns granted Johnson a fight the bout with Langford was called off temporarily Johnson and Langford have met be fore In April inOG they fought fifteen rounds at Chelsea Mass Johnson outpointed the Bostonian in a fight that was fast from bell to bell and Langford while outpointed

then challenged Ketchel for the middleweight title agreeing to make 158 pounds five hours before the fight and at the same time offering to make a big side bet that he could stop the latter inside of ten rounds But Ketchel drew the color line although CofiJuly 4 Ketchels excuse for not meet Ing Langford was that he wanted to rest up for several months and take on considerable weight so he could enter f the heavyweight class Recently he gave his reason for withdrawing the color line and agreeing to meet Johnson This was that he was the only white man in the ring today who stood any chance of regaining the champion ship for the whites Langford will weigh around 170 pounds when he tackles Johnson but the latter will have an immense ad vantage in weight for he will be fully thirtyfive pounds heavier than his op ponent Still Langford who is a bet ter boxer and a harder hitter than Tommy Burns will be able to put up a hard battle against the champion With the possible exception of Jack Johnson Langford is the greatest colored fighter in the world and he bas made the mistake like Johnson of demonstrating it too thoroughly In Ills mental makeup he is the perfection of one type of

beautiful romance con nected with the Cherokee rose A young Indian chief of the Seminole tribe was taken prisoner by his enemies the Cherokees and doomed to torture but fell so seriously ill that it became necessary to wait for his resto ration to health before committing him to the fire As he lay prostrated by disease in the cabin of the Cherokee warrior the daughter of the latter a young dark faced maid was his nurse She fell in love with the young chieftain and wishing to save his life urged him to escape But he would not do so unless she would flee with him She consented Before they had gone far impelled by regret at leaving home she asked permission of her lover to return for the purpose of bearing away some memento of it So retracing her footsteps she broke a sprig from the white rose which climb ed up the poles of her fathers tent and preserving it during her flight through the wilderness planted it by the door of her new home in the land of the Seminoles And from that day this beautiful flower has always been known throughout the southern states by the name of the Cherokee rose Philadelphia North American A SCRAP OF PAPER Charred and Discarded It Brought Wealth to a Poor Widow Some years ago a poor widow kept a small shop in a Berlin suburb One evening as she was serving a customer a workingman stepped Into the shop and asked permission to light his pipe Drawing a piece of paper from his pocket he twisted it up and after lighting his pipe threw down the spill and walked off with a word of thanks When sweeping the floor the follow ing morning the widow took up the charred paper out of Idle curiosity and unfolding it saw that it was a lottery ticket only a portion of which had been burned She folded it up put it away in her pocket and had almost forgotten it when the result of a large lottery drawing caught her eye in the paperShe then remembered the crumbled ticket in her pocket and on producing it found to her amazement and de light that it had won a prize of 50 000 She claimed the prize and al though she advertised widely for its original owner with the intention of sharing it with him she was left in undisturbed possession of her fortune

From Being Deeply Gullied Where a road Is built on a steep grade some provision should be made to prevent the washing of the gutters Into deep gullies This can be done by paving the bottoms and sides of the gutters with brick or field stones In order to make the flow as small as possible In side ditches it is often ad visable to construct frequent outlets into the adjacent fields or streams or if possible to lay underground pipes or blind drains with screened open Ings into side ditches at frequent in tervals says a bulletin from the de partment of agriculture The size of side ditches should depend upon the amount of water they are expected to carry If possible they should be Located at least three feet from the edge of the traveled roadway All side ditches should have a grad ual fall of at least half a foot In every hundred feet Their sides partic ularly those sloping toward the road way should be broad and flaring so as prevent accidents as well as the caving in of their banks Their bot toms should be wide enough to carry the largest amount of water that is likely to flow through them at anyone time Sometimes the only ditches necessary to carry off the surface water are those

AUTOISTS AND GOOD ROADS Kansas Club Formed For the Improve ment of Public Highways The advent of the automobile and its use on country roads have caused an awakened Interest in good country roads and the owners of autos work Ing In conjunction with the farmers should before many years result in greatly improved roads The auto own ers of Newton Kan have organized a club which in Harvey county marks the beginning of an important good roads movement and the success of this club in the work undertaken will be watched with interest says the Farmers Advocate If the plan is practical stste wide organization of a similar character will result The Newton club has a permanent roads committee to make frequent trips over the various public high ways diverging from the city and make note of such spots as may require improving and confer with the road overseer of the township where in these bad places exist and arrange to have the necessary attention given the automobile club furnishing one half of the money required to accom plish this It is also the purpose of the club to promote harmony among residents who own autos and residents of the rural districts Naturally the farmers have a feeling of dislike toward auto mobile drivers Some of the drivers are careless and take no precaution to avoid scaring teams they pass or meet It Is the intention of the to dispel this feeling on the part ofI farmers so that a better feeling will prevail all around A Wise Decision After an inspection of the improved roads in Greene county Pa State Highway Commissioner Hunter has decided that all

OWNERSHIP The Feeling of Pride That Is Born of Paying Taxes Many a time said a policeman in the southern purt of the city when arresting men especially intoxicated men 1 have been told by my prisoner that he was a taxpayer and that he helped pay my wages q always regarded this sort of back talk us merely drunken insolence and never paid much attention to It until about a year ago when I bought a house and lot and became myself a taxpayer 1 had always rented be fore and never gave a thought to taxes but as soon as I moved into my own house J began to appreciate the feel ings of men who relented arrest be cause they paid taxes There is certainly a considerable ad dition to the dignity of the man who helps I support the government He feels a degree of responsibility that a renter or roomer never understands and my idea is that every man in the couiitry ought to become a taxpayer as soon as he can And the mere fact that he does help support the govern ment and bears his share of the expense makes him a better citizen Habitual criminals are rarely taxpay ers They know they may have to run any day and perhaps never come back soy do not buy real estate but are- roomers and

solemnly told the maid to go down and bring up a bottle sejlThebut I alone saw it Then after the meat he told her to fetch a bottle with the blue seal and with dessert the one with the yellow seal was

themselves to managers of homes for elderly persons is the accumulation of trunks Each new arrival brings one or more trunks often several and it Is not expected that these ever will be taken away as the inmates are to remain permanently It is not how ever considered safe to sell the trunks or give them away as they are the private properly of the Inmates and there is a possibility that the trunks may be needed again through some change in affairs or fortunes TLp trunks therefore pile up until they become the despair of managers nazi it is a relief when some of the older or least substantial

was to the Jew Each was significant of the mission of its people The Acropolis with its glories of art bodied forth the idea of beauty The Capitol with its pointing to the ends of the earth stood for Romes law and organization The templeI at once the center of Israels al and religious life revealed to the gage of polytheism the one living andJ true God The Purpose of God If time permitted it would be delightful to gaze upon the porches and pillars the cedar and the gold the lillies and pomegranates as well asI the snowy marble and above it all that glistening dome which stood in the blue sky of Syria like a glory in the air But I wish to fix your gaze Qn the purpose of the God of the temple in this the temple of God Whnt know ye not that ye are the temple of the living God and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you That building was typical of Christ of the church and of heaven in a way but above all it stood for the way of man to God as well as for God in man Without stands the court of the Gentiles accessible to all nations ItheHolylaver the blood and the water significant of the justifying and sanctifying influences of the blood of Christ also the entire consecration of the believer in the whole burnt offering Thus cleansed and forgiven we resell the holy and useful life of the Christian in the candelstick the light of life the shewfiread the bread of life the altar of incense the prayer of life The crown and consumma tion of it all is then seen ill the Holy of Holies with cherubim the mys terious guardians of Gods presence hovering over the ark and with the tables and the mercy seat the fit sym bols of his mercy and his justice All History Prophecy All history is prophecy said Lord Bacon Here in this hoary temple is Gods prophecy of the work of the blood of his son in your life and for your salvation and the history of the indwelling of that son in your life Are you redeemed 7 It is because you have redemption through his blood Are you justified Being justified through his blood Are you cleansed and made holy His blood cleanse th froni all sin Are you as strangers and wanderers restored 9 Ye who sometime were afar off have been brought nigh by the blood of Christ Have you access to the Fathers present in prayer It is because the great High Priest has entered sprinkling the blood Are we arrayed in spotless robes to ap pear in the presence of the Great King We have washed our robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb Are sinners cast off at last to eternal death 7 It is because they have trodden underfoot the blood of the Son of God The temple was an object lesson of Gods way with man as well as Goals work in man Marvel of Centuries T The 20th century is the marvelof the centuries but the marvels are spiritual Steam electricity the tel ephone and the wireless with all their wonders will usher in the more startling navigation of the airthe only spiritual realm not yet conquered But deeper than all of these are the psychic forces waiting for mans lordship These are all the greatest and yet the quietest forces whose triumphs surround the brow of the century with the aureoles of glory But more wonderful stillare the astonishing spiritual forces at work in the world Gravity is great so are the sunlight and shower that with the frost eats away the granite df the Alps and melts down the Rocky Mountains but what is that to the undercurrent of civilization only another name for Christianity that is surely toppling the hoary superstitions of the ages The Temple Holy The snowy marble blushed at the least stain Immaculate from the dust of defilement it stood The Lord is in his holy temple Over the doors and even on the bells of the horses Holiness to the Lord The priests their garments utensils of service even the very sacrifices were salted with saltin order to avoid contamination j I J If that dead temple was holy hon much more the Living temple If templeIlute the temple of the Holy Ghost shouldIGod him shall God destroy Think of the temple of God in any ques AnIThat temple was God in wood and stone We are God embodied in the flesh Temple Beautiful IThededication the cloud over it and the glory of the Lord filled the house This was the cloud that had gone before and followed Israel until the last murmuring ripple of Jordan had fallen on their ears on the shores of Canaan The brightness so dazzled their eyes that they had to veil their faces They had seen the glory of the Lord that which Moses had prayed to see when he said shew me thy glory It was that glory which caused Moses face to shine So that the dill= dreg of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countneance which glory was to be done away How shall not the ministration of the Spirit be glorious For if that was done away was glorious much more that which remaineth is glor ious This is the beauty of holiness That which transforms the lives and transfigures the faces of people Ev en 1he most homely face is glorious with that light never seen on land or sea That shekinah hovered over temple And the halo is on theI face and church and home today that our prayer Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us UNCLAIMED LETTERS r Adams CharleswAnderson Mrs Josie Bates W M Belle Anna Bush Mrs Eliza A Brin egar Carter Craycraft Miss Ivy Duvall Leonidas Hazlewood Ellicnt Hisle

Stoddard Lectures It may not be amiss for me to add my testimony to their value and excellence- I consider John L Stoddard the prince of authors on travel and you cannot read one of his lectures with out feeling the association of a great mind and that the white ages of his book have been transformed by the work ofa skilled artist These books are worthy a place in the li brary of the most learned and yet with such simplicity are they writ ten that they are a joy and an in spiration to those whose educational advantages have been meager 125lt LOST Apaekage containing a pair ofsuspenders Please
